Baku. Lachin Sultanova-APA. "Which commission of Israeli Knesset
will discuss the so-called Armenian genocide", this was discussed
in the commission of Israeli Parliament. APA reports quoting
Israeli mass media that Josef Shagal, who is from Baku by origin,
and representative of the ruling party Zeev Elkin had a conflict,
they insulted one another.

At the end of the discussions decision was passed to discuss the
"Armenian genocide" in the Knesset's commission of foreign affairs
and security.

After the meeting, Josef Shagal told journalists that the events
happened in Turkey in 1915 were historical facts.

"Armenians were citizens of Turkey, but supported Russia in
Russia-Turkey war. This is called collaborationism. Analogous event
happened during Lebanon war when SADAL fighters. Hezbollah killed
those, who supported us and could not leave the country. It should
be taken into consideration that they were killed not because they
were Christians, but because they were collaborationists", he said.
